Dear 2020 .. What a year! one that we will never forget. We have decided to close our little shop earlier than usual this year, we want to make sure that this year will not be forgotten, for all the right reasons, making memories.
My 3 kids finish their 1st term of school on Friday, I will finish off the year with them.
We have created an advent calendar this year. Quite a random one I must say, one that comes right out of a tupperware jar. We have all put ideas in and every day we pick one. We do have opt outs, family opt outs when it is literally impossible or we are all just too busy or tired, or individual opt outs. I have alerady opted out as I am not a fan of ice cream - so the idea of having ice cream for breakfast was a huge no for me. We have for the past 2 weeks laughed so much singing carols, playing charades, we even had to play Fortnite as a family! Tonight we picked "facetime family" I can't wait!! We will carry on doing this each day till they go back to school. This calendar has really brought us closer, placing family first and we are creating memories that will last a life time. (hopefully the extra kilos I'm putting on won't though!)
We are firm believers in anything "play" and even though the situation we are in is super silly and scary, we can still have a beautiful christmas if we only just played a little bit more - together as a family. This year I vow to gift my family presence and love. Extra Extra Specially.
I wanted to Thank you for putting faith and trust in our little shop this year! I am truly grateful. We have big plans for 2021 we are very excited to share these soon!!
Till then .. Stay safe and have a lovely Christmas! This Christmas ... make it a memorial one, together.
